The OPPOSITION BLOC faction has registered a draft Resolution on cancellation of the results of voting for the law No. 5670-d “On Ensuring the Functioning of the Ukrainian Language as a State Language”.
“Thus, neither the speaker of the Verkhovna Rada Parubiy, nor the president Poroshenko can sign this law. Accordingly, it cannot enter into force,” MP Volodymyr Husak said.
According to him, the language law was adopted in violation of the Regulations – at the time of voting there was no decision of the relevant committee, moreover, the facts of non-personal voting were recorded.
Volodymyr Husak stressed, “The OPPOSITION BLOC is ready to challenge the language law in the Administrative and Constitutional Courts”.
“The language law adopted today will in any case be canceled. In this form, it cannot exist, because in fact a ban is imposed on the use of minority languages and a system of prosecution for the use of other languages is being created. Ukraine should not turn into a language prison for its citizens,” Volodymyr Husak concluded.
